Cleveland federal Judge Donald Nugent sentenced 42-year-old Raymone Clements today on his conviction for illegal possession of a weapon and ammunition by an ex-convict.
The charges stem from accusations that Clements tied a bullmastiff to a tree in Cleveland Heights last November and fired four shots at the dog.
The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer says the dog, which was wounded twice, has been adopted and nursed back to health.
Clements denied in court that the gun and ammunition belonged to him and blamed a friend for shooting the dog. Clements has convictions for rape, robbery and drug trafficking.
I want to see what the Judge in this case decides
